Are these guns really all that? Can't believe the prices.

easy with the WV jokes :ham'r

we had a used Korth revolver at the gunshop many moons ago, shot it a few times, my experience up till that point had included some unbelievable competition grade PPC revolvers , so in comparison, I didn't notice anything all that great about the Korth, there are plenty of Smith's I would grab in a heart beat over one ...just my .02 YMMV
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

With revolvers like that I think a lot of what you're paying for is the craftsmanship. That's not necessarily a bad thing but they're not exactly going to do magic tricks just because they cost a lot. For my money I like the Ruger revolvers, especially the Redhawks and Six series. They're a little rough around the edges but they're strong and easy to maintain.
